Sweet Birthday Photos

Adeleena will be turning two soon, and Nora will be three on Monday. We had a nice weekend giving them snuggles and playing. Today we took a few pictures to remember them at this age. Two was much harder to capture than three! So much personality here!

Happy 5th Birthday Anneka!

Today we celebrated my God-daughters 5th birthday with a Trolls themed party at the YMCA.
 Anneka was a colorful bundle of joy!
 She had many friends there to celebrate with her, dance, and play! It was a wonderful day!
 It seems that she has grown in the blink of an eye.
I can still remember that hot day in July, when I held her for the first time, and now she is about to start kindergarten!
The next year will be filled with fun, learning, and new experiences. Grow with grace my love!

Anneka's Preschool Graduation

Today our sweet girl graduated from preschool. I thought about holding her that hot day after she was born, then again the day she was Baptized. I cried on my way, in the car, remembering our first sleepover.
 I was good at the program until Anneka went and took her parents hands to dance, and then I cried again. I am just so incredibly proud of her wonderful parents! Way to go Mom and Dad you are raising a kind, smart, friendly young girl!
 I cried once more during the drive back for good measure! Congratulations Anneka! You are going to be a Kindergartner! Todd and Claudia,  Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for letting me be a part of your family. You make me feel incredibly good, when you invite me to things like this. It gives me purpose. All my love!

Hats off to Jade!

This weekend we celebrated our wonderful niece Jade as she graduated from high school. She is a great blessing in our lives and we are so incredibly proud to call her our niece. She is filled with kindness, generosity, spunk and nurture. She has all of the qualities that make her a prime candidate in a helping field if she should decide to go that route. 
 Jade, wherever your path may lead, know that simple character traits that you already display will set you apart from the rest. Kindness, integrity, and perseverance, are qualities that cannot be purchased and will follow you regardless of where your career may go. Focus on your character, and become the person you desire to be, lead by example and others will always remember the way you made them feel in your presence. Now is when the real growth begins! Enjoy your journey, and know that we are here to support you!
